That's another thing: we should be installing loader.efi as
\efi\boot\bootx64.efi (as well as \boot\freebsd\loader.efi) since it's
entirely possible to lose the Boot Manager entry and end up with an
unbootable system as a result. Unfortunately people have had bad
experiences with other operating systems overwriting bootx64.efi and
don't believe we should do that.
Perhaps I just need to come up with a proof of concept or demo to show
that it is possible without breaking other OSes.
